Every June, on a small farm in rural Wisconsin, a large crowd assembles. A remote field is flooded and turned in to a giant mud pit for people to test their grit and see what their homemade tough trucks can do. What started out as a gathering of friends 20 years ago has now become one of the most anticipated days of the year for many. Routinely drawing 1,500+ people to attend, this event has become the ultimate playground for a group of diehards who just love to play in the mud.

Beatrice Nyariara lives in Korogocho. It’s widely considered to be Nairobi’s most dangerous slum.

More than 150,000 people are packed into the shanty town which is less than two square kilometers.

Crime is high. Gangs are active. Addiction is rampant.

A while back, men in her community started to attack the “grandmothers” of Korogocho at night. Most of the women attacked are sexually assaulted, and some have been killed. The men believe that the elder women were less likely to be HIV positive. They also saw them as vulnerable.

A few years ago, Beatrice decided enough was enough. It was time to fight back. It was time to develop a community.

The result of that decision empowered the group, and taught their community to respect them, value them, and to know how to be there for them.

Together, they are taking back Korogocho.

A couple wakes up in bed together; they start making out and he wants to take things further, but she’s not in the mood. A passing joke about paying for her to change her mind turns serious and afterwards, they have a hard time coming to terms with how this has changed their relationship.
